Genesis 28:12

And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.

John 1:51

And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

Psalm 61:2

From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

A ladder speaks of spiritual activities in a ministry or work-related situation which leads to promotion. Spiritual things are higher than earthly things. Better natural circumstances are higher than less desirable circumstances. A ladder symbolizes a positive step-by-step movement, increase or progress upwards or forwards or into the right direction. This speaks of improvement or promotion.

However, a ladder indicates that this will be a result of our own efforts and it will be a slow or a gradual ascend. A ladder is difficult to climb, not like stairs, and therefore it sometimes speaks of promotion or progress through sacrifice and effort. It symbolizes the moving forward or promotion (because of effort or sacrifice) which leads to higher spiritual ground (from glory to glory or from victory to victory). It does not happen at once but step by step.

Different ways of climbing a ladder may reveal more details. Climbing a ladder may indicate a positive (up) or a negative (down) human effort. Climbing it cautiously speak of improvement or promotion but there is a warning to be cautious for some reason. Climbing it with skill speaks of achieving promotion or improvement easily, almost effortlessly.

In a negative sense, climbing a ladder down into a basement or another area is a warning that you are going backward or downwards instead of forwards and upwards. This indicates that you are spiritually losing ground.

In another negative sense, climbing a ladder can sometimes speak of a person’s unawareness of God’s plan or presence in his circumstances. His attention might be totally on his own plans and efforts whilst God actually has a wonderful plan for his life. By relying on God a person could have achieved spiritual promotion a lot easier like climbing stairs or even going up with a lift. Nevertheless, climbing up a ladder in dreams and visions is a positive symbol indicating spiritual promotion. Of course the same can be said for natural situations like in a work situation.

Ladder (Climbing down)

This is a warning not to move backward or downwards. It speaks of spiritual activities in a situation that will lead to demotion. We should pray for wisdom and we should be obedient when we receive a warning like this.

See “Ladder”


1 Peter 1:19

But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.

John 1:36

And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!

Revelation 5:6

And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

A lamb in dreams and visions often symbolizes Jesus Christ but it can also symbolize a young new convert who started to follow Jesus Christ very recently. It speaks of the person still being a babe in Christ.

Proverbs 26:7

The legs of the lame are not equal: so is a parable in the mouth of fools.

Isaiah 35:6

Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.

Job 29:15

I was eyes to the blind, and feet was I to the lame.

2 Samuel 5:18

And David said on that day, Whosoever getteth up to the gutter, and smiteth the Jebusites, and the lame and the blind, that are hated of David’s soul, he shall be chief and captain. Wherefore they said, The blind and the lame shall not come into the house.

Lame in dreams and visions speaks of people who have spiritual imperfections in the sense that they are spiritually weak and/or that they are not spiritually active. It speaks of them not grasping real spiritual truths and them not being obedient in terms of spiritual matters. Such people are spiritually ignorant and inactive.


Proverbs 20:27

The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly.

Psalm 119:105

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Proverbs 6:23

For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life.

Isaiah 62:1

For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth.

Psalm 18:28

For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.

A lamp in dreams and visions have four different possible meanings. In one sense, it symbolizes the (W)word of God (Christ is the living Word of God). In another sense, it symbolizes salvation. In yet another sense, it symbolizes the Spirit of God and in another sense, it symbolizes the spirit of man. It is important to connect the dream to the reason it was triggered in the first place (see The Golden Key!) or to determine how the other symbols in the dream relate to this symbol to determine what the meaning of the symbol is in the particular context.


Zechariah 4:2,3,6,7

2 And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof:

3 And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.

6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.

7 Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.

A lamp-stand symbolizes a new and a powerful move of the Holy Spirit. He brings back our first love for Jesus Christ and He removes spiritual obstacles that hinder our relationship with Him. This symbol is really powerful. The oil in the lamp speaks of the power of the Holy Spirit and the light speaks of the church or a congregation. When the Holy Spirit moves as symbolized by the lamp-stand the church functions in a powerful way being the light of the world.


Genesis 1:9-10

9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

Genesis 2:11-14

11 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;

12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.

13 And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.

14 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.

Land in dreams and visions symbolizes our spiritual territory or sphere of influence. It speaks of what we managed to inherit and it speaks of our position as rulers (kings, priests, and lords) in the kingdom of God.

In another sense, it can symbolize our spiritual journey. In this sense, it might appear in the dream or the vision that we are walking or moving from one place to another (just a matter of location) but in reality, it symbolizes our journey in life. In such a case, the locations symbolize different aspects of development or situations or occurrences in our life and it has nothing to do with locations. A very short dream of just a few seconds or minutes can, therefore, represent quite a few months and even years.

See “Field” for a better understanding of this symbol.


Psalm 59:8

But thou, O LORD, shalt laugh at them; thou shalt have all the heathen in derision.

Proverbs 1:26

I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh.

Job 18:21

See also
The Symbolic Language Of The Bible Explained

Till he fill thy mouth with laughing, and thy lips with rejoicing.

Ecclesiastes 3:4

A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance.

People laughing in dreams and visions symbolizes joy and gladness or mockery. It depends on the meanings of the other symbols and the reason that the dream was triggered in the first place which variation of the meaning to consider.

At one stage of our lives, my wife and I went through a difficult time, for quite a number of years. It was really a season in our lives of trials and hardship. One night I had a dream of my wife laughing. A few days later our circumstances dramatically changed for the better and my wife was really happy about this new phase in our lives.


Jeremiah 17:8

For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.

Revelation 22:2

In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

Leafs in dreams and visions symbolizes the provision of God in the midst of either a period of prosperity or a period of suffering, trials, and misery. God will not leave us or forsake us and although things around us look dire, God is still providing and still looking after us and still healing us.

In another sense, leafs symbolize the healing ministry in which case it symbolizes the hands of people (the laying on of hands – praying for people). People are trees and their arms are branches and the leaves are their hands and the trunks are their legs and the roots are their feet.

See “Tree”


Leeches in dreams and visions symbolize people who act like parasites. Leeches are similar to ticks but cause more harm to the people from whom they draw energy and “life”. They have suckers at both ends and they attach themselves to a host with these suckers and feed on blood, having first secreted the peptide hirudin to prevent the blood from clotting. In a spiritual sense, people symbolized by leeches do not have their own spiritual revelations and inspiration and they rely on other people for that.

In a natural sense (non-spiritual), people symbolized by leeches suck all energy out of people and they rely on the creativity and initiative of other people.


Numbers 11:5

We remember the fish, which we did eat in Egypt freely; the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlick.

Dreams Symbols Interpretation Course

Leeks in dreams and visions symbolize the food produced by the world (Egypt). This food symbolizes spiritual food of little or no value. These teachings are aimed at replacing the true and relevant and valuable word of God and to keep people occupied and in bondage (worldly systems).

Left to right

See “Directions and Locations (movement and location) in dreams and visions”

Left turn

Ecclesiastes 10:2

A wise man’s heart is at his right hand; but a fool’s heart at his left.

Taking or making a left turn in dreams and visions symbolizes a bad decision. It speaks of a wrong decision with bad consequences (falling into bondage or losses and/or defeat in a specific situation).


Deuteronomy 28:15,35

15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee.

35 The LORD shall smite thee in the knees, and in the legs, with a sore botch that cannot be healed, from the sole of thy foot unto the top of thy head.

Proverbs 26:7

The legs of the lame are not equal: so is a parable in the mouth of fools.

Psalm 147:10

He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man.

Legs speak of the power and the strength of a person. Your legs enable you to stand and to face life from a position of readiness. Strong legs symbolize a strong spiritual condition or position of power. Weak or damaged legs (missing parts, holes in legs, hollow legs, injured legs) speak of a person who is weak when it comes to spiritual matters. Lame legs speak of a person who is spiritually totally inactive. Such a person has no power at all and does not reign as a king in the kingdom of God.

Always remember to take the difference in meanings into consideration in terms of whether it is the left or right body part that you dreamed of. See “Directions and Locations (movement or location) in dreams and visions (Human body parts)”


Jeremiah 5:6

Wherefore a lion out of the forest shall slay them, and a wolf of the evenings shall spoil them, a leopard shall watch over their cities: every one that goeth out thence shall be torn in pieces: because their transgressions are many, and their backslidings are increased.

Revelation 13:1-2

1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

Opposites And Contradictions in Dreams Interpretation

2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

A leopard symbolizes a person with an attitude of blasphemy or rebellious aggression toward God and the children of God. It symbolizes a person or people who are in conflict with the gifts or the flow and the manifestations of the Holy Spirit. Such people are often using the Name of God in vain. Even Christians can reveal an attitude of blasphemy or rebellion against the Holy Spirit.

In a natural sense (non-spiritual), leopards symbolize people who are jealous of other people and aggressive toward other people.

See “Animals” for a better understanding of this symbol.


Matthew 8:3

And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

Leviticus 13:44

He is a leprous man, he is unclean: the priest shall pronounce him utterly unclean; his plague is in his head.

Numbers 12:10

And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle; and, behold, Miriam became leprous, white as snow: and Aaron looked upon Miriam, and, behold, she was leprous.

Leprosy in dreams and visions speaks of people who are in serious bondage because of sin. It speaks of them being so seriously involved in sin, almost or really to the point of no return. They are in an utterly grave spiritual situation and they seriously need deliverance.

Letter (Alphabet)

Romans 2:27-29

27 And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfil the law, judge thee, who by the letter and circumcision dost transgress the law?

28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh.

29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

Romans 7:6

But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.

2 Corinthians 3:6-7

6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

7 But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away.

Dictionary: 6 in 1 Book Collection

Letters of the alphabet in dreams and visions symbolize the law of Moses. It speaks of people whose mission in life is to live according to the law and not by grace. Such people have rejected the blood of Christ and they are relying on their own righteousness and own efforts to be righteous before God.

Letters (Post)

When you dream of letters it symbolizes messages from God. These messages may come through reading the letters of Paul which he wrote to the churches or it may be through the reading of books.

See “Envelopes”

Letters (Handwritten in bed)

Handwritten letters in bed symbolize personal messages from God through dreams.

See “Envelopes”


Psalm 131:3

Let Israel hope in the Lord from henceforth and for ever.

A letterbox in dreams and visions symbolizes that a person is waiting for a word from God. Such a person is often waiting patiently and expectantly for God to answer or to speak to him or her. The color of the postbox indicates what type of answer is expected.


See “Elevator”

This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

James 1:17

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

Psalm 104:2

Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain.

Matthew 4:16

The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.

John 8:12

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

John 12:35-36

35 Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.

36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.

2 Corinthians 4:6

For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Psalm 119:105

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Matthew 5:14

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

Light in dreams and visions symbolizes God, Jesus Christ and the believers (the church). God is light, He gave that light to us (it shines in our hearts) and we can, therefore, be a light in this world just like Jesus is. Light is all over this world because of the saints. We possess light. It is our inheritance and one of our spiritual belongings (light is life).

In another sense, light symbolizes the word of God. It shines on our path so that we do not have to walk in darkness.

Light (Bright)

A bright light shining into the darkness in a dream or vision symbolizes the light of the word of God. It speaks of a person who knows the will and the ways and the word of God, probably in a specific situation although it can be in a general sense also.

Light (Green)

A green light in dreams and visions speaks of a person obeying God’s will in terms of righteousness and, therefore, reaping God’s peace in his life.

Light (Red)

A red light in dreams and visions speaks of a person who disobeyed God’s will in terms of righteousness and therefore reaping conflict.


A lighthouse in dreams and visions speaks of the church being a lighthouse for the world. We are in the world but not of or from this world. We are a city on a hill (like a lighthouse) that is shining for the world to see. The sea symbolizes the unsaved masses of this world. They, however, do not have to be lost because if they look up they will see that “lighthouse” on the hill.


Daniel 10:6

His body also was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude.

Exodus 19:16-17

16 And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled.

Lightning in dreams and visions symbolizes God getting involved with things in the earth. It speaks of him getting active to intervene or to change or to do some very important work in the lives of people. It speaks of his majesty and power. The thunders and voices and earthquakes that are associated with lightning symbolizes divine input that changes nations and it captures the attention and awe of people.

Lilies (White)

White lilies symbolize praising and worshiping God in fruitfulness, victory, faith, holiness, and righteousness.

Lily (of the valleys)

Song of Solomon 2:1

I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.

Matthew 6:28-29

28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin.

29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

The lily of the valleys symbolizes Jesus Christ. It speaks of spiritual beauty and splendor. It speaks of spiritual brightness, magnificence, and grandeur. Remember that beauty in the eyes of God is never physical but spiritual. It is not our bodies that makes us beautiful, it is our hearts (soul). Whenever the soul is totally submitted to God, then people see Christ in us. That speaks of a “soul” who decided once and for all to crucify himself and his will and to align himself with the spirit (of man), the Spirit (of God) and with Christ. This is a soul that is not in rebellion anymore.

See “Heart” and “Stomach” for a better understanding of this symbol.


Although limestone is hard it is not as strong as marble or granite and therefore it symbolizes a poor foundation. A poor foundation in dreams and visions symbolizes that a person or a group of people are building their faith and their spiritual experience on something that is not from God or not built on the word of God. Jesus is the Rock and we build our faith on rocks, not on the sand and not on limestone.


Genesis 41:42

And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon Joseph’s hand, and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck.

Revelation 19:8,14

8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

Linen (fine, white and clean) in dreams and visions speaks of the righteousness of the saints. It is the opposite of heavy, dark and filthy clothes. See “Clothing” for a better understanding of this symbol.

Isaiah 5:29

…they shall roar like young lions: yea, they shall roar, and lay hold of the prey, and shall carry it away safe, and none shall deliver it.

Psalm 104:21-22

The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God. The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together…

Revelation 5:5

And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

Romans 2:5-8

5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;

6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds:

7 To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:

8 But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath.

Matthew 7:29

For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

Matthew 21:12

And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves.

A lion symbolizes authority, strength (boldness, courage), majesty (kingship, royalty) and prevail. It speaks of the authority of a person who prevails or overcomes. If we take up our son-ship as kings in the kingdom of God we are like the lion of Judah who is the King of kings. We overcome and we prevail just like Jesus Christ did.

A lion speaks of the authority of Jesus (the Lion of Judah) who was appointed by the Father to be the Judge over the nations. In this sense, it speaks of the judgment of God on the nations when He (Jesus) visits them, to judge them, according to their works of unrighteousness. In this sense, a lion symbolizes the wrath or the anger of God. It speaks of the discipline of God. When people or nations persist in their sins, when they refuse to repent or refuse to treat people according to the word and the will of God, He becomes a lion of wrath.

God has a side to him that many Christians fail to see or fail to comprehend. We must never forget that He revealed Himself to Israel first as a strict God judging and punishing people who sin. That never changed. God is still like the God of the Old Testament. He punished Jesus in our place so that we do not have to be punished anymore. However, although He does not punish people anymore, He still does chastise his children and He still does punish nations when they oppress the poor. Yes, you have heard correctly, He still does chastise his children and believe me God’s chastisement can sometimes be quite severe and quite serious.

In another sense, a lion can also speak of the judgment of God on evil spirits. For this reason, a lion also symbolizes the casting out of demons.

When it comes to financial matters, a pride of lions sometimes symbolizes the need for a financial strategy involving more than one member of the family or the business to obtain financial blessings. In a dream, this is symbolized by the strategy that a pride of lions displays when they hunt together as a group. Working together does have its advantages.

See “Animals” for a better understanding of this symbol.

Lion (Black)

A black lion symbolizes a person who does not believe that he can overcome or that he can prevail. Such a person has a lack of faith in his own authority or ability in Christ.

See “Animals” for a better understanding of this symbol.

Lion (Golden)

A golden lion symbolizes the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lion of Judah. It speaks of true authority and victory because of purified faith.


Psalm 63:5

My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips.

Psalm 12:2-3

2 They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.

3 The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things.

Psalm 34:13

Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.

Psalm 119:13

With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.

Proverbs 10:21

The lips of the righteous feed many: but fools die for want of wisdom.

Lips speak of a person’s testimonies and declarations. It symbolizes positive or negative testimonies. Other than the tongue (speech and language, blessing or cursing, talking guile things, everyday speaking about all sorts of things including good things and bad things), the lips are more about testimonies and declarations. The color of lips reveal the words that a person is speaking or supposed to speak. Remember that a Christian cannot talk or speak recklessly. We always need to speak the word of God.

A woman I know once had a dream in which she was applying a blue color (revelation knowledge) around her lips (not really on her lips but actually around her lips). Just after she did this, in the dream, she realized that she actually applied eye shadow (not lipstick) around her lips. In this dream, God was speaking to this lady. He was emphasizing the need for her to speak the right words (to get her testimonies sorted out).

Dreams Symbols Interpretation Course

God always wants us to guard our mouths. He wanted this woman to apply the spiritual insight that he gave her (see “eyes” as symbolized by the eye shadow) to her testimonies and daily conversations. This woman had wonderful insight in the ways and will of God and she also experienced wonderful things in her life but yet she testified about the negative things that she experienced in her life at the time.

She was not disciplined in her talking or testimonies (almost like the nation of Israel who tended to forget almost immediately what God did for them in the wilderness after they left Egypt). She often made reckless or negative statements which were, in fact, contradictory to the word of God and to what she in fact experienced in her life.

Lips (Dripping with honey)

Lips dripping with honey speak of a person who speaks seductive words or words aimed at making another person feel better (encouragement). The dripping suggests that the person is going out of his or her way to make a person believe that he or she (the other person) is just amazing (almost like flattering a person with words).

See “Honey” and “Sweet” for a better understanding of this symbol.

Lips (red)

Red lips speak of a person who speaks negative words (testimonies) causing conflict and dissension. Remember that not all dreams and visions are about spiritual matters. People also testify about each other. All people do. A bad testimony about the character of a specific person, although true, may cause dissension and conflict and is therefore unnecessary or irresponsible in some cases.


Leviticus 9:10

But the fat, and the kidneys, and the caul above the liver of the sin offering, he burnt upon the altar; as the Lord commanded Moses.

The liver symbolizes forgiveness. The liver breaks down old and damaged blood cells and removes it from the good and healthy blood cells. This speaks of the forgiveness of sins. Sins lead to death and it must be removed just like the liver removes dead cells from the blood. We need to make sure that our spiritual livers are functioning by constantly forgiving other people when they sin against us. When we do not forgive other people the “dead cells” in our spiritual bloodstream will kill us spiritually because the dead cells symbolize unforgiveness and bitterness.

Liver (Damaged)

A damaged liver symbolizes a person with an attitude of unforgiveness in his life. If we do not forgive people then the damaged blood cells in our spiritual bodies cannot be removed from our spiritual blood. This results in bitterness in our lives. In such cases, we suffer because of a lack of spiritual oxygen (good living cells) in our lives just like in the natural.

Liver (With disease in the liver)

A person who has a dream of a damaged liver speaks of a person who fears or who feels that God will not forgive him for a specific sin that he committed.


Matthew 10:28

And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

A lizard symbolizes a person with an attitude of slyness or “cunningness” or laziness. He appears busy but is actually very lazy. When he is discovered he often quickly moves away.

It also symbolizes a person who fears man. It is because of this fear that such a person develops a sly and a cunning personality.

See “Animals” and “Creatures (Of the land)” for a better understanding of this symbol.


Joel 2:25

And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.

Locusts symbolize something that consumes all the blessings of the Lord. It speaks of destructive enemy powers. When, in a dream or vision, the swarm of locusts moves out to right, it means a time of restoration and prosperity is approaching. If it comes in from the right (moving to the left) it means a time of financial hardship is approaching.

See “Animals” and “Creatures (Of the air)” and “Grasshoppers” for a better understanding of this symbol.

Looking back

A person who is looking back, in a dream or a vision, symbolizes a person who is hanging onto past relationships.

In another sense, it speaks of a person who is looking back at historical events in the church or in the natural. For instance, a person I know once pondered on the history of the church (the bad turns, the bad decisions and the bad routes that the institutional church took in the past). That night God showed this person, in a dream, what happened to the church in the past few hundred years and why it happened. God showed him how the church was involved in spiritual fornication and so on. What was interesting in this dream was the fact that the person saw all this looking back over his left shoulder. What he saw in the dream was an elderly woman, naked with legs open, a really worn “private part” with a few black and Asian men standing around her. In the dream, he knew that these men have taken turns having sex with her for quite a long time (symbolizing the years since Constantine).

See “Sex”, “Man (Black)” and (Man (Asian)” for a better understanding of this symbol.


Genesis 2:7

And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Ephesians 2:1-2 (MSG)

It wasn’t so long ago that you were mired in that old stagnant life of sin. You let the world, which doesn’t know the first thing about living, tell you how to live. You filled your lungs with polluted unbelief, and then exhaled disobedience.

Lungs in dreams and visions symbolize a person with an attitude of praising God and expressing thanksgiving toward God with all he has. Lungs speak life. It contains life and that also means perpetual life as we keep on breathing in Christ. Christ is life.

In a negative sense, the lung can breathe out poisonous gas which is an attitude of hatred and jealousy.

Also, according to The Message Bible, in Ephesians 2:2, we can fill our lungs with polluted unbelief, and then exhale disobedience. For instance, breathing out a dark smoke speaks of unbelief and disobedience and depression.

In another sense, people who are terminally ill may experience a time of negativity or hopelessness leading to an atmosphere of unbelief or depression. To them, it feels like they reached the end. They sometimes expect to die at any moment. In a dream, this is symbolized by them exhaling a dark smoke which fills the room and causing it to get dark. It speaks of a person who feels a bit concerned about their chances to make it through the ordeal.

Usually, this is a call for praise and worship. God wants us to trust in Him for healing and if we do, our healing is guaranteed. He does not want us to sink into a pit of depression when we face dire circumstances. He wants us to believe in Him and his word and He wants us to trust him. There is nothing better than praise, worship, prayer and meditating on the word of God in times like this.

Always remember to take the difference in meanings into consideration in terms of whether it is the left or right body part that you dreamed of. See “Directions and Locations (movement or location) in dreams and visions (Human body parts)”
